Linda's Story

Linda's Story

"I am 57 years old and have suffered from eczema off and on most of my life.

Like Chance, I had it so very very bad as a child. So bad, that I had to wear long 100% cotton shirts even in the summer in Louisiana and Texas. My eczema got better as I got older, but always there would be some that needed to be addressed.

Fast forward to about 5 years ago, and my symptoms became severe again with eczema on the palms of my hands, my feet, my arms, behind my knees. We breed, raise and show American Hairless Terriers, so I need to be able to wash my hands often throughout the day. You can imagine how bad it is to have it on your hands and to use soap that isn't kind to your skin. I had been to 4 dermatologists, and they put me on the strongest creams they could prescribe. Lots of money. I would take baths and use only Cetaphil's Eczema Formula, soaking like I do now with the goat's milk soap. It would get slightly better, but nothing like what has happened with your products. I would be in such pain with the itching, that it would reduce me to tears. I was afraid to go out in public and resort to wearing cotton gloves when out.

But I found you and your amazing product. I fell in love with your products, especially the milk bath. So each night I have a ritual. We have a really large garden size tub. And I probably use too much of the milk bath. But I use about 1/2 of a package of the milk bath container and run water on it. Then I get in the tub and use one of the soaps and basically soak for about 45 minutes. The enzymes from the goat's milk soap are helping so much with the eczema that my hands are completely cleared, and the only eczema that remains is some slight eczema on my feet. I think this will resolve after we get cooler.

I spent thousands of dollars are prescription creams and other bath products. Nothing really worked. I now use the Eucalyptus Spearmint bar as a shampoo. It's awesome for that. No shampoo with chemicals running down to my feet. I just follow it with an apple cider vinegar rinse. I use your soap to wash my hands and have started washing the dishes with it. One of my favorite times of the day now is to take my daily goat's milk bath in the tub. With your products, I'm doing something healthy and naturally good for my skin.

I can't thank you enough for all you do. I love love love all your products!!!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
